Just installed this engine on my 1.6 Great Planes Ultimate 27%. Ran a tank of fuel through it this morning....all I can say is "WOW!" It's turning a Xoar 22X10 at around 6900 on a 32:1 mix. I expect it'll turn 7200 with fully broken in. I held it up vertical at 1/3 throttle and it just wanted to stay there with no effort. Can't wait to try this in the air. My sullivan smoke system is working perfectly too!

I had some electronic noise issues yesterday, but found that the plug cap wasn't fully seated...seated it all the way and now it's rock solid RF connection on a DX8 T8000 rx.

Re: Dla-56

I flew an 110" Extreme Flight Yak 54 with the DLA112 on it a couple weeks ago and it was really impressive! It easily had as much or more grunt than my DLE111 in my 104" Carden Yak 54. The owner mentioned that his motor was a bit tight when he first started the break in process and he heat cycled it 5 or 6 times. Now it seems pretty well perfect! Starts and runs like a champ! He's still running it on break-in too, but it runs great!

Re: Dla-56

wow I think it may be a bit to mutch engine for that plane ,I am running a DLA56 in my 88" EF @ 17lbs and it near pulls the wings off.hover @ 1/3 throttle, great engine monster power I am using a 23x8 falcon carbon but it seems a bit on the small side. super reliable engine,easy to start.it does kick around a bit at idle though ,more so than a DLE ,this may be a problem on a smaller plane with a light prop .
